    Baby wipes work awesome too because they are thinner and you can feel around better.

    When you clean a tail pocket on a normal basis, what you see on your baby wipe should be more like this:

    Maybe a few hairs or a little dirt, but there should be no gunk. I only clean ours out once a week and that is what I see. If it gets yucky I will do more but that only happens sometimes and rarely. Once you get the intial problem under control that is.

    When I first found Molly's pocket it was sooooooo gross. It took some time to get it cleaned up and healthy again. I have also found pockets on some of my bulldogs after they got much older, where they had none as pups or young adults, so I didn't even think to check until they scooted. The hips change positions as they mature I came to find out, causing the pocket to increase in size, and found them in poor condition as well. Using the Malacetic Ultra cured them in just a few days. That reddish brown gunk is just plain gross and you know it makes them miserable!!!! It has to itch so bad.
    Great, thank you soooo much!! I am going to try this for a few days and see what happens!! I just hate the thought of having to put him on more meds!

    Yes thanks to their help, Winston is already starting to look better!! I used the malacetic otic ultra last night and when I check him out this morning no more bleeding!!! So I have hope that a few days of treatment will get him back to normal! The food switch is going well so far it seems, he hasn't had any reaction to the pork and peas so that gives me hope! He absolutely loves it I know that, so fingers crossed this will be his new food! We are still on 3/4 old 1/4 new so I should have a better idea in a few days when we switch to half & half!!
